VIDEO of AXLE Back Borla S (before and after)

I installed the Borla S axle back exhaust. Here is a before and after set of videos. Video is poor quality, but sound is at least marginal It was taken from a still camera's video function so probably not as dynamic sound as it could be.

I'm happy with the final product, but it did want to twist a little bit, so I had to tighten more than it suggested in ft-lb.

Actually your video and audio are really good. In fact, I think your stock exhaust is about the best sounding stock exhaust I have heard yet! The Borla upgrade is music to my ears too!

I'd do recommend this easy Borla setup, but do know that it is a little louder overall in the car, but I like that. I've not had 'drone' yet, but haven't been on long highway drives yet...

I took it on a 100 mile trip and I have to say that there is a bit of drone noticed that starts around 71-72 miles per hour and peaks at about 76 and then decreases to about 78mph. This is a bit of a bummer as that is the speed limit. It's not overwhelming or too obnoxious, but noticeable.

I do wonder if that is resonating in the trunk or the whole car. Maybe I could put some sound absorbing foam behind the rear seat to eliminate most of it?
